We believe its never too late to learn or develop a new skill.......
Being an under achiever at school, leaving school with no qualifications, became a mother and wife at 19 years, divorced by the time I was 24 years. This left me a devoted single parent of two.
As a primary school student my dream was to become a beautician and a teacher. The sad thing was I believed I wasn't intellegent enough. When I became a single parent I made a decision, I would not waste time doing nothing.
I went to college and obtained my first qualification, this made me hungry for more, the motivation it gave me was immence. I went on to develop my skills, working part time in a beauty salon in Sydenham. I continued to learn, I qualified as an aerobics instructor, a fitness instructor, an aqua aerobic instructor.
I wanted to train to become a beauty teacher, unfortunately my beauty tutor told me I wasn't intelligent enough, this made me even more determine to train. The only way I could train for this, was to use the aerobics instructor qualification. I went on to qualify for a Certificate in Education at Canterbury and Christ Church.
It was a wonderful feeling the day I called my beauty tutor to let her know I was looking for teaching hours, "sweet"
My journey has been amazing, I've taught in a number of Further Education Colleges also worked as an aerobic & aqua aerobics instructor for Greenwich Leisure Ltd, ( I loved teaching the over 50's classes, I had such fun!).
Whilst working as a Beauty Lecturer I continued to train gaining an assessors and internal verifiers qualification.
I absolutely love my job, I love working with people I specialise in hair removal, this has helped to change the life's of many people. I sometimes have to pinch myself when I realise what I have achieved over the years - 19 years!
I have just opened a training centre in Eltham and aim to develop the centre to provide NVQ qualifications in Beauty Therapy, to run along side the accredited diploma's I already offer.
Excited about the future...........
